When my daughter was a teenager she had a pet rat.
One day while we were not home he apparently got out of the cage and was never seen again. I'm pretty sure one of the dogs ate him. __________________ And God said "let there be light".

Little Nero really did not mean to upset anybody. He just felt like his true self that moment.
Dogs not only eat pet rats, Ali. Apparently, they also eat the expired bodies of their masters. http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2017/06/pets-dogs-cats-eat-dead-owners-forensics-science/ __________________ “Dogs are our link to paradise.

Nero is so cute, Hula, he's just being a dog. (I did not click, though)
Storm killed a little bunny, once. Guess how impressed I was? He didn't mean to, though. We had 3 bunnies nesting in the area where he goes out to do his job. I kept him on lead, but he pulled me (is is strong) and sniffed one to death (literally). It was only just born and I felt terrible. We managed to keep him away from the area until they left. One other died (having nothing to do with Storm) and the third is a back-yard resident. The mother only comes once a day to tend to her babies.

My dog, Brooke, chases squirrels, rabbits, etc. but has only once managed to catch anything. That was a quail and she carried it in her mouth for about 1/2 mile with me running behind her shrieking "drop it!" When she finally got home she let it go and it ran, completely unharmed (although I little disoriented, I suspect) under a bush where another family of quails lived. Brooke looked at me as if to say "what was all that fuss about?!"
